The MLB trade deadline is a little over two weeks away and the Yankees have some decisions to make. Last year, they added a bat (Luke Voit), traded away numerous relievers (Adam Warren, Chasen Shreve, Giovanny Gallegos), acquired some rotation help (J.A. Happ and Lance Lynn), and improved upon the bullpen by adding Zack Britton. They also acquired Andrew McCutchen in August, but they won’t have the luxury of making moves after the July 31st deadline this year. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What should the Yankees’ trade deadline strategy be?

Should Brian Cashman go all-in on one elite player, like a starting pitcher? Should the Yankees focus on several smaller moves? Maybe the team should follow last year’s strategy and try to improve the bullpen while adding a few back-end starters. Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer with us. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.

Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (July 19th) for your post to be considered.
